For the fun of it

A passel of pirates have invaded the old Western Sizzlin' building in Greenville and set up a themed indoor miniature golf course and pizza place.

Captain Jack’s Mini Golf offers 18 unique holes in a climate-controlled environment with a pirate theme.

The exterior is designed to resemble a pirate ship, like the ones that previously sailed the North Carolina coast. The interior features hand-carved wooden elements that depict sections of a pirate ship, a tavern and the Bahamas Trading Company.

The mini-golf course winds through a variety of swashbuckling scenes featuring alligators, cannons and treasure chests.

"It is my goal to offer a place that a family of four can go to for 50 bucks and get dinner, drinks and golf.," said owner Kristin Voytek.

Players get fresh popcorn free with every game.

Captain Jack's also offers a build-your-own 9-inch pizza for $4.85. Voytek says the pizza and sauce are made from an Italian recipe using all fresh ingredients and no preservatives. Pizza toppings include mozzarella, parmesan or romano cheeses; meats including sausage, pepperoni or Canadian bacon; and vegetables including green peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach and olives.

Dinner salads are $4.65, and the soda bar features both Pepsi and Coca-Cola products. The snack bar also offers cookies, candy and chips.
